Maverick Gaming LLC announced they closed on the purchase of five Washington State card rooms. The card rooms are as follows: Macau Casino in Lakewood, the Macau Casino in Tukwilla, the Caribbean Casino in Kirkland and the Caribbean Cardroom in Kirkland, and the Caribbean Casino in Yakima.
“This purchase gives Maverick nineteen card rooms in Washington and nearly 290 table games statewide,” said Eric Persson, owner of Maverick Gaming. “With our growing footprint in Washington, we are very excited to be making this substantial investment in Washington and adding these properties to our portfolio. Additionally, we are actively looking to construct new projects in Everett, SeaTac and the Tri Cities area. These projects are likely to include hotel rooms, a nationally known sports bar, 50,000 square feet of convention space and our table game amenities. Our expansion plans will create even more employment opportunities to Washingtonians” said Eric Persson, owner of Maverick Gaming.
“The purchase of these cardrooms not only increases our footprint, but now Maverick is ontrack to employ over 3,000 Washingtonians – with an average salary above $75,000 per year along with a benefits package that is unparalleled. I’m proud to say that Maverick is quickly becoming an employer of choice in Washington” said Tim Merrill, President of Maverick Gaming Washington.
“We see our cardroom investment and our future expansion plans as a natural benefit for legal and regulated sports wagering in Washington. As a member of the Shoalwater Bay Indian Nation, I look forward to working with my tribal brothers and statewide decision makers to bring this amenity that is so strongly desired by Washingtonians.”
